1. David Fonseca
- "Rocket Man" by Elton John - Great cover!

(The video is very much out of of sync! but it's the only one available on youtube. Enjoy the song!)

- "How Do You Keep Love Alive" by Ryan Adams
Good job, I felt it more than with Ryan...

(Live recording)

- "Amazing Grace"
Amazing thing! He went to the streets, the beach, a playground, a werehouse, his car, etc, and recorded every sound on location, later mixing them all together - no studio dubbing. You've gotta watch it:

- "I'm on Fire" by Bruce Springsteen - Cool thing.

Would you please comment if you know (have heard) David? :)
